The block certainly has the scrappy look however it does lose some of its translation for the design of the block. Under normal circumstances the scrappy parts would have been a dark fabric, with the solid blue being the lighter color. I'll have to give this quilt some thought. I may be better off to just make 8 inch blocks of my scraps and sew those together to create the quilt. I think I prefer the 501 blocks look as they should.
Hope you have a good day.
